Top drawer performance in a stellar show is probably why no-one has rated this yet.

From the last GD show at the Fillmore West. Jerry sings this beautifully,perfectly and the whole thing just sort of lopes along at a nice gentle swing

In a week of very good Deals, this one struts its stuff. Fine and full of fun, listen to Jerry shine.

You need the Sir Mick source on IA as some of the shows seem to be the night before. Muddy sound but a good version of the few times this song was pla

It's actually played twice-an electric version in set 1 which is also very heady. But the second version, ....well what can I say. This song is one of my faves and I adore these 197 acoustic versions. slow and hypnotic. Quick, go run and see!

Tender and well sung and well played-a must for Black Peter. Best of 1974? Possibly. I think that the amazing Eyes and that huge 2nd set jam mean that a lot of the other songs get overlooked. However, every one is really well played. This is one of those Stellar GD nights.

An excellent version, deserves to be much higher. Listen out for Keith, some tasty playing.This is one of those shows where every song, even the ballads and the cowboy tunes are excellent.

After 3 1/2 hours of the very best of 1974 Dead we encore with this excellent version of US Blues. Rock and Roll Jerry.

much better than the later versions as Jerry is still in good voice in 77
